iPhone keyboard – necessary?
Here’s something cool. This article on gizmodo talks about a keyboard with an iphone dock. It’s called the WOWKeys keyboard and is for sale only in Korea.
Now I ask, why would anyone need an iphone dock on their keyboard? The iphone when docked in this keyboard acts as a number pad, a trackpad, and a remote. I think using it as a trackpad is a pretty neat idea, especially if you are working on something on your computer that involves drawing and aren’t proficient at mouse drawing.
The number pad aspect is kind of silly. I mean, the number keys themselves are a tried and true standard. Why would anyone need to use their iphone as one? That would be like putting a camera outside your house and using a flat screen TV right behind it instead of just installing a window. Sure, it’s a high tech solution, but superfluous. The only reason I can assume it’s there is because it saves keyboard space. And if that’s the point, then I guess it makes sense.
I’ve been using an iphone for a while, but I don’t know if I’d buy this particular product. Anyway, it’s apple certified so, I guess Apple thinks it’s a good idea.
So readers, would YOU use this keyboard?
